Third Reading

The third reading for Jon was held in his presence in November 1990. In July, Jon's birth father visited his mother, and the budding romance between the two blossomed.

Jon's mother never returned from that trip. She left her husband and all her belongings to move in with Jon's father. From that point on, Jon's interaction with the two was often tense. There were several dramatic, even frightening, occurrences that were very upsetting to Jon. At the time of the reading, he wanted very much to find out where this situation was heading. The question he wrote was:

How will my relationship with my birth mother and birth father develop in the future? Here are the cards she drew:

Position
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Cards Drawn Eight of Wands King Pentacles Eight of Swords Four of Wands Nine of Wands Death Ten of Pentacles Devil Page Pentacles Empress

We can see that the energies of Jon's situation are still in evidence. There are four repeat cards. The Eight of Swords has moved from Card 6 (reading 1) to Card 3. The restriction that was in the future is now the basis of the situation. The emotional events of the past year have been so turbulent that Jon feels powerless at a fundamental level.

The Nine of Wands has moved from Card 9 (reading 2) to Card 5. This card was a warning to Jon to take care of himself and prepare for the worst. Well, he has certainly started to think along those lines! Having been burned, he knows he has to be strong and defensive emotionally.

The Four of Wands has moved from Card 6 (reading 2) to Card 4. The celebration over the reunion is fading. The excitement of the good times has moved through Jon's life and is now way behind him.

Cards 7 and 8 show that Jon's expectations still do not match his parents'. Jon longs for a secure, orderly family life (Ten of Pentacles). He wants a solution that will endure - nothing more than the chance to experience the ordinary routines of a normal family.

His parents, however, are locked into the obsessive relationship symbolized by the Devil.

Jon needs a resolution, and there are two cards that suggest it is coming. First is the Eight of Wands as Card 1. It shows that a conclusion is likely. Jon will be able to complete unfinished business if he takes quick, decisive action.

Death shows that an ending is approaching in the near future. Perhaps the three will suffer a parting of the ways. Maybe Jon will make a transition into a new kind of relationship with his parents.

The Empress as the outcome or resolution is a positive sign because it shows that the ideal of the Mother is the understanding awaiting Jon in this situation. The Empress is the archetype of Mothering - the ability to love, cherish and nurture despite all temptations away from that response.

How is Jon to proceed if he wants to bring about this positive resolution? The key lies in the two Pentacles court cards. The Page as Card 9 is the fourth repeat card; it appeared first as Card 1 (reading 1).

Jon found his birth parents despite many formidable obstacles, but she discovered that the reality was not the same as her fantasy.

The Page is encouraging his to claim his power and find a solution that works. He must release her dream of an ideal family once and for all so he can relate to his actual parents with all their faults and limitations.
